today a wander in the Nikau bush, a rainforest remnant on the Kapiti coast. birds drop pure notes from the canopy, ferns and epiphytes wander skyward. tiny striped fungi cluster on fallen logs. we walk mindfully. at predetermined 'trig' points each person gathers a windfall leaf to add to their 'walking bundle'. these become cloth documents, coded maps of the path each person has taken. mementos of a memento of time past.
